Tuna Recipes

Southern Bluefin Tuna is well-known for its high-quality otoro and chutoro fatty cuts favoured by sushi and sashimi lovers. As with other seafood, it is high in omega 3 fatty acid (‘good’ fats), which can aid rheumatoid arthritis and cardiovascular disease, as well as having potential anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory effects.
